bracelet (arm ornaments)

Woman’s bracelet, Akha, Thailand. Heavy white metal woman’s bracelet from Thailand, likely to have been made in China and worn by Akha women. At the base of the bracelet is an opening; on each side of this opening is a short section of flat-sided, solid white metal. These solid bases lead into six rows of heavy twisted wire, which form the hollow, decorative upper part of the bracelet.
